Vol. LXXXiI, No. 63 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Sunday, November 21, 1971 Ten Cents

Twelve Page,

Despite the hot debate within the
University community over the ad-
visibility of banning most federally-
sponsored classified research from
the campus, it appears that the ef-
fects of such a policy would be far
less significant than first envisioned.
In fact, if Senate Assembly's class-
ified research proposals - calling
for a ban on all federal research pro-
lects which produce classified results
- were to be enacted by the Regents
next month, the following results
seem almost inevitable:
* Over 90 per cent of those "ban-
ned" classified projects would con-
tinue to be performed, either at an
off-campus laboratory or on-campus







after being declassified by the gov-
* Those involved in classified re-
search, whether professors, students,
full-time researchers or technical em-
ployes of the laboratories, would be
in no danger of losing their jobs -
although a small number of profes-
sors might be forced to make a de-
cision between continuing their re-
search and continuing their teaching
duties; and
* The University would suffer min-
imal, if any financial ill effects.
A major factor in these conclusions
is the assumption that Willow Run
Laboratories - the site of almost 90
per cent of the University's classified
research - will leave the University
to be re-constituted under the aus-

pices of a non-profit research organi-
This eventuality was made clear in
a long-awaited statement on classi-
fied research issued by President
Robben Fleming last Monday.
Fleming explained that cutbacks in
U.S. defense spending - the major
source of funds for classified re-
search - have made Willow Run's
financial condition increasingly un-
This assertion is borne out by Wil-
low Run's budget figures which drop-
ped from $13 million in 1966 to $6.5
million last year.
This year, Willow Run Director
William Brown has predicted that the
labs' budget will rise to about $7.2
million - largely due to increased

funding from the National Aeronau-
tics and Space Administration
(NASA), whose contracts generally
do not produce classified results.,
Brown, however, attributes the
greater part of the labs' financial de-
cline to the expiration of several ma-
jor contracts including:
--Project Michigan, a 15-year, $70
million project designed to enhance
"the U.S. Army's long-term capabil-
ities in combat surveillance and tar-
get acquisition," a project r ep o r t
stated. The contract ended in 1968;
-The Maui Observatory, a con-
tract that provided the labs with
$3 million annually for building the
world's first infra-red observatory
for tracking missiles from Mt. Hale-

akala, in Maui, Hawaii. Technically,
the contract still is in effect, but its
funding has been slashed to about
$10,000 per year, since most of its
work has been completed, B r o w n
It has been the labs' inability to
attract multi-million dollar defense
contracts to replace those reaching
expiration that has been responsible
for its rapid decline.
Certainly, a restrictive research
policy would further jeopardize the
future of the labs, but according to
Fleming, "Even if the present rules
for acceptance of classified research,
approved by the Regents in April,
1968, remain unchanged, the likeli-
hood of reversal of this downward
trend is slim."

After extended controversy and confus-
ion, SGC has apparently lost control at least
for the present of $1500 it granted for the
establishment of a student print co-opera-
Funds which were 'allocated to the print
co-op board are now apparently in the hands
of the Washtenaw County Black Economic
Development League (WCBEDL) following a
vote of the student print co-op board to give
the money to them for the establishment of
a Washtenaw County Print Cooperative.
The print co-op board consists of mem-
bers of American Revolutionary M e d i a
(ARM), SGC, and others.
According to Charles Thomas, of WCBEDL,
the appropriation from the student print
co-op is considered "a gift" by WCBEDL.
The organization, he said last night, in-
tends to use the money to establish a county
co-op "under the total control of black
Controversy developed last week over the
use of 'the funds by the student co-op board
and the involvement of ARM members in
the handling of the funds.
At an emergency SGC meeting last Mon-
day night, council member Barb Goldman,
also of ARM and the co-op boaiod, resigned
from SGC, giving the organization a check
for the $1500.
ARM spokesman George De Pue, however,
announced last night that ARM had second
thoughts about the matter, and that it no
longer intended to reimburse the funds to
SGC and had stopped payment on the check.
According to DePue, because the money
had already been granted to WCBEDL at
the print co-op meeting last Sunday, ARM
was not responsible, nor did it have the right
to return it.
The decision to return the money, he said,
was an error which had been made in at-
tempting to avoid what he called "the am-
bition of The Daily, and the paranoia of

Woody Hayes kicked and screamed, but
the Michigan football team won the game

fought 10-7 victory from Ohio State yester-
day, avenging their 20-9 defeat last year and
becoming the first undefeated Michigan
squad since 1948.
However, until tailback Billy Taylor
crossed the goal line 'with just over two
minutes left in the contest to put the Wol-

'U' Senate
to diSCUSS
The University Senate, a body composed
of all University faculty, researchers and
librarians will meet tomorrow and is ex-
pected to establish its position on the classi-
fied research issue.
Three researchers at the University's Wil-
low Run Laboratories filed a petition for
"consideration and review" of Senate Assem-
bly's proposal to severely restrict classified
research on campus.
According to Senate rules, the wording of
the request from the three precludes 'the
Senate from considering overruling the action
of the assembly-the faculty representative
body-unless the rules are suspended.
The Senate has the power to overrule the
assembly proposal by a simple majority.
Whatever action the body takes on the plan
will be carefully considered by the Regents
when they make a final decision on classified
research probably at their December meet-
The proposal calls upon the University to
"not enter into or renew federal contracts
or grants that limit open publication of the
results of research," except when the pro-
posed research is likely to "contribute so
significantly to Uhe advancementofiknowl-
edge as to justify infringement of the free-
dom to publish openly."
Since the item is not officially on the
agenda, a two-thirds vote is required before
the matter can be discussed. If a motion to

Special To The Daily
WASHINGTON - Over 3,000 demonstra-
tors-most of them women-gathered yes-
terday for the first national women's march
and rally for abortion law repeal.
The demonstrators included over 200
from Michigan as well as contingents from
Kansas, Minnesota, Florida, Rhode Island,
Texas, Illinois, and New York, who hitch-
hiked, flew and rode chartered buses to
the capital. A San Francisco march attract-
ed an additional 2,000 persons.
The march and rally were sponsored by
the Women's National Abortion Action Coa-

lition (WONAAC), which has affiliates in
over 22 cities, including Detroit.
WONAAC's goals are the repeal of all
laws that regulate abortion, force unwanted
sterilization, or restrict contraception.
Meanwhile, about 5,000 marched in New
York in an anti-abortion rally and a group
of about 30 staged a similar rally in Wash-
ington, away from the main march.
As the WONAAC marchers left the El-
lipse, the area behind the White House
where they had assembled, they streamed
down Pennsylvania Ave., flanked on both
sides by over 200 women marshals, and a
contingent of capital police.
Bystanders-including many men on

lunch breaks-lined the sidewall
the march.
"No more contortions, we wan
